The thermodynamics of learning - 3 views

  •  
    It is typically considered that brain's process of learning is highly energy efficient. While investigating how efficiently the brain can learn new information, physicists have found that, at the neuronal level, learning efficiency is ultimately limited by the laws of thermodynamics.

Deep Neural Networks are Easily Fooled: High Confidence Predictions for Unrecognizable ... - 4 views

  •  
    Other possible study: get a textbook example of an image of a pen, evolve it just enough so NN can't recognize it anymore, while minimizing the distance between the original and evolved images.
    EDIT: Its been done already: http://cs.nyu.edu/~zaremba/docs/understanding.pdf

    Of course, you can't really use them to extrapolate. The unknown unknown is always the trickiest :P
    They should just make another class "random bullshit", really and dump all of this stuff in there.
    I think there's a potential paper right there

Real-Time Recognition and Profiling of Home Appliances through a Single Electricity Sensor - 3 views

  •  
    A personal interest of mine that I want to explore a bit more in the future. I just bought a ZigBee electricity monitor and I am wondering whether from the signal of the mains one could detect (reliably) the oven turning on, lights, etc. Probably requires Neural Network training. The idea would be to make a simple device which basically saves you money by telling you how much electricity you are wasting.

    Then again, its probably already done by Google...

    nice project!
  •  
    For those interested, this is what/where I ordered.. http://openenergymonitor.org/emon/

    Update two.. RF chip is faulty and tonight I have to solder a new chip into place.. That's open-source hardware for you!
  •  
    haha, yep, that's it... but we can do better than that right! :)

Thinking wind turbines - 0 views

  •  
    Siemens is using neural networks to improve operation of wind turbines, reducing maintenaince needs and improving output by one precent. It seems even that Siemens has quite a large neural network study group, probably linked to german universities, with various examples in practice (see websie)

Convolutional networks start to rule the world! - 2 views

  •  
    Recently, many competitions in the computer vision domain have been won by huge convolutional networks. In the image net competition, the convolutional network approach halves the error from ~30% to ~15%! Key changes that make this happen: weight-sharing to reduce the search space, and training with a massive GPU approach. (See also the work at IDSIA: http://www.idsia.ch/~juergen/vision.html)

    This should please Francisco :)

    where is Francisco when one needs him ...

    ...mmmmm... they use 60 million parameters and 650,000 neurons on a task that one can somehow consider easier than (say) predicting a financial crisis ... still they get 15% of errors .... reminds me of a comic we saw once ... cat http://www.sarjis.info/stripit/abstruse-goose/496/the_singularity_is_way_over_there.png

    I think the ultimate solution is still to put a human brain in a jar and use it for pattern recognition.
    Maybe we should get a stagiaire for this..?

    memory cloning

    "It would be very easy not to co-operate, and then it wouldn't work", that's still the important part. I'm sure Dario LOVES this paper. Would be nice to have a coffee with him right now...

    An short article about something called biomimetics. To all I understand, it is not.
